"A weekend tribal battle in Sabha, Libya, allegedly prompted by a monkey pulling off a woman's headscarf, has killed 16 people, officials said. Clashes between the Gadadfah and Awlad Sulaiman tribes in the southern Libyan city injured another 60 since Thursday. Residents say the battles began when the pet monkey of a Gaddadfah shopkeeper attacked a group of girls walking past the shop. The monkey bit and scratched one girl, pulling off her headscarf, and men from the Awlad Sulaiman tribe retaliated by killing three Gaddadfah members, the Libyan Express reported Sunday."
